Growler from Beer Hound. Pours deep reddish brown with a creamy tan head. Good head retention, attractive. The nose is toasted nuts, plenty of caramel and brown bread. A bit of dark chocolate. The taste is cocoa-dusted nuts. Toffee. More chocolate. Light notes of tangy fruits. Hints of vanilla. Medium body, fine carbonation. Slightly watery on the palate. Overall, a pretty solid effort.
